Morning Coffee! Painful Loss For Rangers

Good morning, New York/New Jersey-area sports fans! A mixed bag of pleasure and pain Wednesday night, depending on which regional teams you root for.

A really painful night for New York Rangers' fans. The eighth-seeded Rangers led, 1-0, late in their NHL playoff series opener against the Washington Capitals, but could not hang on. The Caps won in overtime, 2-1. That hardly wreck the Rangers' chances of an upset in this series, but it certainly would have given them a leg up.

Memo to the New York Mets: Troy Tulowitzki of the Colorado Rockies is good, you might want to stop pitching to him. Tulowitzki was the star Wednesday for the second straight day -- hitting a game-changing three-run home run -- as the Rockies defeated the Mets, 5-4.

The New York Knicks lost to the Boston Celtics, 112-102. A painful loss? Not really. It was a meaningless end to the regular season, and no one got hurt. The Knicks have the pleasure of starting an NBA playoff series against Boston on Sunday.

The New Jersey Nets ended a mostly painful season with a 97-92 loss to the Chicago Bulls.

The New York Yankees had the pleasure of watching A.J. Burnett spin six shutout innings in a 7-4 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
